Late MLB Star Jose Fernandez and His Estate Sued for Foreclosure Over His Miami Home

The late MLB star Jose Fernandez has been sued, along with his estate, for foreclosure over his Miami home.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Colonial Savings F.A. filed suit against Fernandez on January 10 claiming that they wish to sell his Miami home to pay back the loan taken out on the property. The bank has also sued his mother, Maritza, and the MLB star’s estate, which is run by his widow, Maria Arias.

The suit claims payments on the mortgage for Jose’s Miami home have not been made and that has prompted the filing for foreclosure.

According to court docs, the principal amount owed on the home is $401,372.11. They claim they are also owed $18,979.30 in interest and $40,780.30 in advances for a total of $461,099.71.

Jose purchased the 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom, 3,597 sq. ft. home for $680,000 back in 2014.

Fernandez’s estate has yet to respond to the lawsuit in court, and it is unclear if the estate plans to sell the home.

The 24-year-old MLB star died on September 25, 2016 in a boat wreck in Florida. A toxicology report released stated Fernandez had cocaine and alcohol in his system at the time.
